To bad the MGW is not available, its fantastic!Looking at the first of many upgrades I hope, but I'm considering on which shifter to get the tri-ax shifter or the Pro 5.0 shifter. I loved my MGW shifter in my 04' Cobra but they don't make one for the GT500. Any help would be appreciated...Thanks
I have not installed one but you can get a good idea by downloading the installation instructions for the FRPP shifter with the following link:For guys who have put in a new shifter, how difficult was it? I thought you had to go in from below on these new mustangs.
True. You have to drop the front end of the drive shaft. Getting the front retainer clips off the stock shifter is more thana 20 min. job itself. they are tough to get to around the huge tranny. You also have to take quite a bit of the console apart to do the inside work. Mine took about 2 hours total. Granted, i took my time. Esp with the console to avoid scratching the interior.it's not like the older mustangs, twenty minutes and you’re done. I believe that you have to drop the back of the tranny down because the shifter bolts in from the bottom under the car.
The picture and description in the Shelby catalog looked nice. I'm not totally unhappy with the stock shifter, so I think I will wait until I see some reviews of the shelby shifter or even wait until MGW makes one.I was told by one of the guys at Shelby their shifter is all theirs, and will be patented soon. His pitch was so good, I have decided to wait until spring when it is due out to make a decision
